In 2014, the Bridgewater College baseball team won the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) tournament and finished the season in the NCAA Division III South Regional Championship. The Eagles lost to Emory University, the eventual College World Series Runner-Up. This was the first ever South Regional title appearance for the Eagles as they finished in the Sweet Sixteen and were ranked in the Top 25 in both and ABCA Top 30 final polls.


The equestrian team has consistently been one of the top teams in the Zone 4 Region 2 of the IHSA, winning the title in 2006 and 2011,[1] and also winning the ODAC championship in 2007 and 2009.[2] In 2011, Bridgewater's first ever trip to the IHSA National Show resulted in a tie for fifth place in the team standings with the University of Kentucky.[3] Bridgewater riders finished in the Top 10 in seven of the eight classes. The top six finishers in each class scored points for their team.


In 2001, the Bridgewater College football team finished the season as national runner-up after a 30-27 loss to Mount Union in the Stagg Bowl NCAA Division III National Football Championship.[4]
